My name is Yuliya (it rhymes with Goo-lia)

My work (and life) experiences are diverse: I grew up in a small town in the former Soviet Union and learned English by watching Star Trek the Next Generation. I’ve taught intertidal ecology at the California Academy of Sciences, mopped floors in my family’s Taqueria, planned weddings, earned an MBA, stayed home to raise my daughter and even performed stand up comedy (just once.)

For the past ten years I have been immersed in the world of marketing, communications and community management.  I have built communities and nurtured relationships, implemented effective marketing strategies by providing insight into customer behavior, and designed real world and online experiences to help bring people together. For the last three years I have studied the art of voiceover including commercial, narration, animation, video games, retail, promo, and audiobooks.

At the core of everything I have done is storytelling.
